U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu will round out her stellar year by taking on Romanian Elena-Gabriela Ruse in an exhibition match later this month in London, organisers announced on Tuesday, according to Reuters.
The 19-year-old Briton became the first qualifier to win a major when she triumphed at Flushing Meadows in September and will take on Ruse having played practice matches with her at last month’s Transylvania Open.
Raducanu who has Chinese and Romanian heritage, heads into the Champions Tennis event at London’s Royal Albert under new coach Torben Beltz, having appointed the German last week.
The Champions Tennis event will run from 25 to 28 November.
It will be the first time Raducanu has played in the UK since September’s dream run in New York, where she became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam
